Question about Linksys WPC54G Wireless-G Notebook Adapter V2.0 (WPC54C)
I'm trying to set up my mates wirless connection.
Equipment ancient laptop, linksys wirless pcimcia card and siemens wirless router.
Issue is that when the laptop starts it is unable to acquire an address for the wirless unless I have the laptop connected to the router via ethernet cable as well. Once connected remove cable wireless works.
Sounds like the router may need a firmware update as the DHCP service is failing to run correctly.
You can however just use a static ip address.
First of all find out the network address in use.
eg. 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.2.1
to find out, - start menu - run - cmd - ok - ipconfig
1. Log on to the client computer as Administrator or as Owner. 2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. 3. Click Network and Internet Connections. 4. Click Network Connections. 5. Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties. 6. Click the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the This connection uses the following items list, and then click Properties. 7. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, click Obtain an IP address automatically (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.
Note You can also assign a unique static IP address in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254. For example, you can assign the following static IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway:
IP Address 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.0.1
